ssl protection

Recommended Posts

So everything with how the site behaves and with little golden locks appearing at the appropriate times and etc appears to work fine. Regardless, when I log into the oscommerce admin page, says that I "am not protected by a secure ssl connection".. accompanied by a sad gray little picture of an unlocked padlock..

Perhaps a matter of configuring oscommerce so that it is able to notice the ssl cert? Any ideas what may be going on here?

Check the admin configure.php file. This thread has some good info:

There really is no reason to have the entire admin panel running under SSL. There was a very simple contribution noting only a couple of changes to have customers and orders run from ssl, but even this is not really necessary unless you are for some unknown reason storing complete credit card numbers in your database.

In your admin/includes/configure.php, put an "S" after every http. Watch what happens.

 

It'll look like this:

 

// define our webserver variables

// FS = Filesystem (physical)

// WS = Webserver (virtual)

define('HTTP_SERVER', 'https://www.yourwebsite.com/');

define('HTTP_CATALOG_SERVER', 'https://www.yourwebsite.com/');

define('HTTPS_CATALOG_SERVER', 'https://www.yourwebsite.com/');

define('ENABLE_SSL_CATALOG', 'true'); // secure webserver for catalog module

 

(1) Dont' forget to get SSL to "true".

(2) The above example was if your SSL was installed to http://www.yoursite.com, NOT http://yoursite.com. If it was http://yoursite.com, just take out the www.

 

Main thing, is put an S after every http, like I did. When you log into your admin, no padlock yet. Try to click anything, and you'll get prompted for another username/password, and the padlock will be present. Hope this helped.

Oh, I disagree completely! I would be frightened to not have all my admin under SSL!

 

Follow the steps I told you to follow.

Don't know how nice it'll be. My gf is grouchy and has a bad cold, and wants me to still be near here every day/night; unreal, these ladies are. So I'm washing my hands every 10 minutes, taking my vitamins, and crossing my fingers. I gotta wake her up in 20 minutes and send her off to class (she's trying to become a nurse), and that'll allow me some free time to shower up, and hopefully get this cold off me so I don't catch it. Glad I could help, you have a good weekend also.
